Set on nearly an acre in Las Palmas, this custom-built home pairs midcentury principles with a modern hand. Clerestory windows bridge two parallel rooflines, while cantilevered overhangs balance sun with shade. Voluminous spaces and glass walls erected with exacting minimalism highlight the changing quality of the natural light and vast mountain views. Anchoring the great room, a linear fireplace surrounded in blackened steel is double-sided to the breezeway. Sixteen-foot walls and recessed lighting echo a gallery feel in the main hall, ideal for displaying a collection. The Poliform kitchen has Gaggenau appliances and dual quartz-topped islands. The master suite features a gym and soaking tub, and guests find two casitas steps from the swimmers pool. Integral to the landscape design of native boulders and Saguaro cacti, five gates pivot across the entry in a play of light and shadow. Between downtown and the mountains edge, this modernist home is ready to hang your art and enjoy.
